“A moral battle cry for freedom!”

 – Langston Hughes on Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

 

No other work of literature helped lay the groundwork for the American Civil War quite like Harriet Beecher Stowe’s ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin.’ In turn, many historians have ‘credited’ this novel with being the contributing factor to the Civil War. This incredible story portrays slave families being torn apart through being sold and resold by slave masters. This story had a polarizing reaction. Over 300,000 of the first edition had to be printed, but remarkably was banned in most of the American South! Even still, it was the most-popular and highest-selling book in the 19th-century and is on the Grolier American 100!

 

A charming first edition set of an American classic that “helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War!” (Will Kaufman)
